The amazing country of Argentina is located in South America’s Southern Cone. It is the eighth-largest country in the world, with 40 million people. Our country is a melting pot, with the vast majority of our citizens of European descent. Argentina is very rich in natural resources, including fresh water, minerals and hydrocarbons. Known as the “granary of the world,” our country is one of the world’s largest food producers, growing enough to feed more 400 million people a year. The literacy rate among Argentines is nearly 100%.
Argentina has more than 30 airports, such as the Ezeiza International Airport, the largest in Argentina, with flights arriving from all over the world; and Jorge Newbery Airport, the main hub for domestic flights, located in the capital city of Buenos Aires.
Argentina is bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north and Brazil, Uruguay and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, with the Pacific Ocean and Chile to the west.
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city in Argentina and one of the most populated cities in the world, a vibrant and cosmopolitan cultural and business hub. It is located on the west coast of the La Plata River, which flows into the South Atlantic. The most visited city in South America and the second most visited city in Latin America, Buenos Aires is a first-class tourist destination, dubbed the “Paris of South America” for its European-style architecture, wide avenues, theaters and exciting nightlife. Buenos Aires is the birthplace of Pope Francisco (former Archbishop of Buenos Aires) and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and will proudly host the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games.
Argentina stands out for its wide variety of tourist and cultural attractions, among them tango music and dance, the Atlantic beaches, the Parana Delta, the Patagonia, Iguazu Falls and the Perito Moreno Glacier. Virtually all the internationally-renowned hotel chains have properties in Argentina. The quintessential Argentine meal is an asado (beef grilled on embers) followed by empanadas (pastries filled with meat and other ingredients), tamales, sweet corn and “locro”. Argentina is home to some of the best wines in the world, and its most widely-known infusion is mate, sipped hot through a metal straw.
